Pros: Nothing
Cons: It they demolish the Building
Firstly the Apartment look nothing like advertised on the Web. It is old !! very old ! A beach view was promised. Well unless I was able to see thought walls I got a street view. the apartment is old, RUSTY to the point of being not safe. Be careful when opening doors and handles as they are rusty ! No heating Nor Air Conditioning The Hangers were Rusty as Well !! This place is a rust Bucket. I asked for a late check out was told they could only give me until 10;30 am ( strange when check in is no earlier than 2 pm ) Then was told to leave by 10 am overall experience : Shit house will never stay there again.

Nice hotel, close to the beach

Pros: The location, cleanliness, easily accessible.
Cons: The information given about hiring an extra bed or in our case portacot.
Location: We visited a SLSC Nobbys Beach Bistro and it had delicious food, 2-3 minute walk with the kids! It was a few close resturants and a corner shop/
I would rate the apartments higher but we were charged $230 to hire a portacot for 7 days. They sneakily charged my husband who didn't know any better $32 a day, even though I had proof and the itinerary stating we'd only be charged $7 a day. $59 and $230 are big differences, when confront though he said that he would refund us and he only charged us extra for the cot sheets as well.. and extra $25 a day for flimsy cot sheets. We had to cut our trip short because of it and still didn't get refunded until we arrived home. Still though, as far as the apartments go, its okay, it has some rust on the doors but that can be expected for its location being right on the beach. The bus stops are a 5 minute walk and the trip to the closest mall is 15minutes by bus. I would stay there again, but id bring my own portacot next time.

A short stay

Pros: Position
Cons: More hours for the manager
Location: Location is excellent. Activities typical of the Gold Coast depending on age and desire.
The views from all of our rooms were spectacular, and if the wind wasn't blowing it was wonderful to have a choice of balcony to sit and vegetate on.

nice hotel

Pros: the location and the interior space
It's very close to the beach, great location with the access to the beach. interior space is big enough for a family. kitchenware is enough for normal cooking. the only problem is there is no room service during the staying, you even need to pay for the extra laundry powder or toilet paper.

Nothing like what we booked

We booked 3 self contained apartments. Each paid the same base amount (one room paid more due to extra kids). 2 of the rooms were beautiful. Ours was terrible. Nothing like what we booked, not clean whatsoever - in fact filthy! Our pans and pots were all burnt and rusted and as a result I was unable to cook my 8 month old babies veggies. Management didn't seem to care much, they did however go and buy new pots/pans after we complained. However said that all apartments were individually owned and all different. Couldn't have cared less that we all paid the same price and one of our families was basically staying in a 1 star apartment as opposed to the other 4 star apartments. Not happy at all and definitely won't be back, nor recommending our stay to anyone else. I am a single parent and I had to save hard for this holiday. Which was definitely not what I had invisioned.

Family friendly apartment right on the beach

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean but the fittings were dated. Great location right on the beach, close to coffee shops and restaurants. We would happily stay there again.

Great apartment right on the bea h

Pros: Beach front access and quiet area...balaconies on two sides..
Cons: Bathrooms require an update in the apt we were in...
Location: Beach front, close to nobbys surf club ... resturants and cafe with 10 min walk..30minutes walk mini golf, shops, resturants, cafes
Our apartment had a small ocean view balcony and a great hinterland view balcony...lounge kitchen dining had been modernised as it looks like the building was bulit in the 70s. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable they had security screens on the windows allowing them to be open at all times.master and lounge also had a ceiling fans as no aircon avail...bathrooms could use an update but were clean and tidy with plenty of room..washing machine and dryer were also in the apt.. It is within a 10min walk of resturants, and has fabulous beach front access..swimming pool with chairs and sun lounges... A great place to stay ..and was everything i expected for the great price we paid..

Pros: great location
Cons: just some T.L.C
it was a comfortable place to stay but does need some air conditioning especially for guests that are not use to the heat, and some block out blinds as sunrise at like 5am is just to early for young kids that are having really big days. The place needs a bit of T.L.C
